- Another memorable scene from the movie involves young girls in the village braiding and decorating Rapunzel's long hair so she doesn't trip over it. You could hire a hair stylist to give each guest a turn getting their hair braided at the party (or ask a friend with skills) or set aside time for the girls to make their own pretty barrettes.
- One of the most popular character's in Tangled is Maximus, the stubborn steed who is determined to capture Flynn Rider. Why not offer pony rides at your party so that Max can be represented?
- If you can't swing that, you could have the kids make stick horses from socks. If that project looks too complicated, cut horse heads from poster board, cut 3-foot lengths of PVC pipes, saw a small slit in the top of each pipe, insert the paper horse heads into the slits (adding a dab of hot glue, if necessary), then set out the plain stick horses along with paint, markers, stickers, sequins and other craft supplies so the guests can decorate them as they see fit. Then provide time for the kids to ride their mini Maxes during the party.
- Play charades using the names of the movie's characters, including Mother Gothel, Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, the queen and king, Pascal, Maximus and the pub thugs.
- Send the kids on a treasure hunt, where they must find a hidden crown. Provide rhyming clues that lead them to the final destination. This could be how the kids find the birthday cake. Decorate the cake with a plastic crown on top, if that's the case.
- In Tangled, Rapunzel's hair becomes magical when she sings. Set up a karaoke machine so the guests can make their own musical magic.
